Greetings RSA Archer Community!
On behalf of the entire RSA Archer Team, I’d like to once again thank everyone for attending the 2018 RSA Archer Summit in Nashville recently. I’m always amazed at the camaraderie the attendees exhibit at this event – something that began 15 years ago at the first Summit in Phoenix is not only still alive and well, but stronger than ever.
This year we were excited to not only set record attendance for a Summit event, but also receive more award nominations than we have ever recieved! While we’d love to be able to give an award to everyone who submitted their success story, we ultimately issued twelve awards and another twelve honorable mentions. We encourage everyone to take a few minutes to review the fantastic stories these winners had to share this year, and encourage you to join us in congratulating them for such an outstanding honor.
